Tsuchiya asked Anne Parker, a Portland-based interior/prop stylist,If she were to bring "Alleyooooop" into her life, how would she like to use it?
Please scroll down to see her response; Parker's playful yet exquisite perspective.
Parker recalls her first impression of Alleyoooop, "This beautiful and unique bag would be an art piece that also serves practical purposes. I was easily able to visualize at a glance that it would blend in like a part of the tasteful interior furnishings."
In the kitchen, its natural fine leather matches well with wooden cutlery. On the shelves, it looks like an objet d'art with houseplants, and blends in nicely with art books, folk crafts, and antique pieces alongside each other. She also added with a bit of a laugh, "Inspired by the original idea of carrying a basketball, I also came up with the unusual and funny idea to take a 'mirror ball" to a party in Alleyoooop with me!'
These consistent operations are the most delicate and complex processes that can only be achieved by a few of Tsuchiya's most skilled craftspeople.
While playful and high-quality, this one-of-a-kind bag would have unlimited uses and possibilities upon your imagination and creativity.
